Hi all, had my Pixel 2 for about a month now, love it, particularly the battery life, not rooted but have been using CPU spy to check if it is going into deep sleep, which it has. Since the May update though there's a lot of time, spent at 300 MHz, rather than deep sleep (comparing screen on time to time since boot)

Any one else noticed this or have any advice ( I guess that would be root it but with long hours away from home at work and kids, I like being able to update OTA)

Thanks

Mine's on its first cycle after the update, so I don't have a lot of data. But in the 2hrs 40 since I unplugged it it's spend 1hr 53 in deep sleep, with 8 minutes wakelocks and 38 minutes screen on. So there's no sign that mine has a problem with sleeping so far.

Personally if the problem persists, no other cause can be found (e.g. an app that's preventing deep sleep) and other people do report it then if you don't want to root the obvious solution would be to report it to Google and see whether a fix comes.

Factory reset before you do anything if it doesn't settle down. Get BBS find out what is causing your wakelock.

Yes that's what it is. You can install it via scan code I think but you will need to run 2 adb commands from a PC to get full functionality that is as good as root. It's a must have app imo.
Oh and the penny has just dropped, first phone since my Nexus 4 that didn't have a micro SD card, full factory reset means I need to back everything up or put it all back on, music, films photos, oh joy. Lol

Have you checked both your partial and kernel wakelocks with BetterBatteryStats?

I don't have a battery stats app installed on my unrooted pixel 2 but since the update my battery is down about an hour, look like I might have to factory reset, im really not happy with having to transfer all my music from my phone to my PC and back again especially when I don't have a usb-c to usb-b lead and about 15gb of music. Oh the joys.

True but Google makes it easier with their cloud backup. It'll be worth it I hear.

Having used TWRP on other phones and iTunes for backing up/restoring the wife's phone via encrypted backup, Google's cloud backup system leaves a lot to be desired. It's really a shame too, because so often the answer/solution to funky Android phone behavior is factory reset.

I feel your pain, the only problem of not having removable storage!

So flash TWRP to the P2 - it's almost trivial. Just unlock, adb fastboot, fastboot twrp.img, then use it to install TWRP.zip. (Or you can just boot twrp.img every time you need it. I did it that way for a few months, then got tired of doing it and installed it.)

Granted, you're running with the bootloader unlocked - but you're on XDA, aren't you? You're not a Facebook-music-phone-call type are you?

    Is BBS better battery stats? Not being rooted I'd need to install from a PC?

    Usually wakelocks after an update/flash is just a bad flash. Factory resetting usually fixes those.
